• Arkansas Twilight Results

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas capped its regular season with a flood of personal best performances at the Arkansas Twilight in Fayetteville and at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Stanford, California on Friday evening.

Veterans Lead by Example

All-Americans Taliyah Brooks, Payton Stumbaugh and Lexi Weeks all picked up wins in their respective events with seasons’ best performances. Brooks won the 100-meter hurdles in 13.29, besting the field by .20 seconds.

Stumbaugh claimed the long jump victory with a wind-assisted mark of 6.29m/20-7¼. Lexi Weeks narrowly edged out her sister Tori Weeks for the pole vault title, winning off a first attempt clearance of 4.55m/14-11.

The Weeks sisters moved up to No. 2 in the NCAA with that clearance, which was an outdoor personal best for Tori Weeks.

New Hogs Forge On

Sprinter Jada Baylark led the flurry of Razorback newcomers who found success on the oval at John McDonnell Field. Baylark was the top performer in the 200-meter dash with a wind-legal PR of 23.29.

Baylark also captured runner-up recognition in 100, second only to All-American Hog, Kiara Parker.

Sophomore Sunkietra McCallister finished second in the 400 with a PR of 54.18. McCallister was top collegiate performer in the event.

Freshman Carina Viljoen dropped 1.81 seconds off her 800 best, crossing the finish line as the runner-up in 2 minutes, 8.77 seconds.

Payton Jordan PRs

Middle distance tandem Nikki Hiltz and Therese Haiss closed out the Razorbacks’ evening with a pair of PRs in the 1,500 at the Payton Jordan Invitational. Hiltz won section two of the event by 3.50 seconds, placing first in 4:12.09. Haiss took third with 4:16.31.

Next Up
The Razorbacks will travel to Columbia, South Carolina, next week for the 2017 SEC Outdoor Championships on May 11-13 in pursuit of their third-consecutive conference triple crown.
